The Cape Cod International Film Festival Opens October 10


Kathryn Pasternak’s “Doeville” will have its Massachusetts premiere at the Cape Cod International Film Festival this Sunday, October 11.

There are a number of film festivals on the Cape and Islands—more on the Islands than on Cape Cod, in fact. Martha’s Vineyard has its MV Independent Film Festival, its MV International Film Festival, and its MV African-American Film Festival; Nantucket has its main festival and then a shorts festival; and on the Cape we have the annual Woods Hole Film Festival and Provincetown International Film Festival, as well as the biennial Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema. But recently, another festival was formed. The Cape Cod International Film Festival began last year and continues this year with a slate of films screening at the Chatham Orpheum Theater.

The festival has a unique schedule in that all the screenings are in the day time—in the morning, actually. The schedule includes documentaries, shorts, animation, and fiction work over three days: Saturday, October 10, Sunday, October 11, and Sunday, October 18, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Filmmakers will be present live or via Skype for many of the films, as well.
